With the end of, hopefully, our last online semester comes another edition of Bwog Staff’s favorite running series. Read up on the music that defined our semester while getting vaccinated and practicing social distancing!
This past year has been nothing short of a disaster for many people, but working, learning, and socializing through our computer screens has produced a few silver linings that we’d want to stick around.
A noose was found at the Union Theological Seminary on Wednesday afternoon in an incident currently being investigated by the NYPD as a hate crime.
Bwog can somehow explain the past 22 days of housing, but the mystery behind the resurrecting 6-person Plimpton suite will remain unsolved.
In the Uris Cafe earlier this afternoon, two gentlemen spiffed up in suits had the following exchange: Suit 1: “If you met the perfect girl, would you ditch your girlfriend?” Suit 2: “No way man, the sunk cost is way too high.” To the girls lucky enough to call these men their own, we suggest you try […]
Last week, rumors abounded that the East Asian Library was implementing a major policy change. Our Columbia-trained reactive minds got irrationally angry and readied our protest signs, assuming it was similar to the one implemented in Uris during finals last year–no undergraduates allowed. However, a short email exchange with the director of the East Asian […]
The B-School announced today that they’d received a $100 million donation from businessman and philanthropist Ron Perelman. Perelman is part of the Board of Overseers for the B-School and serves as CEO and chairman of MacAndrews & Forbes Holdings Inc., which that owns a ton of corporations—including the Revlon make-up company and Scantron, the company […]
As of Finals week, you can add Uris to the list of places that will turn you away after an ID check. This is the first time that admittance to Uris’ Watson Library has been restricted to only B School students. The upper floor, 2M, has been off-limits for undergrads since April 15, but now […]
A sign has appeared in Uris warning rowdy B-schoolers to keep it outside. Bwog was wondering why a similar sign didn’t exist in Butler, until we realized the obvious (and sad) answer. When you go to a school that treats its students to a kegger, you need to make sure that the library is an alcohol-free zone. When […]
The Health Department is, as of this summer, requiring that every restaurant in New York display the letter grades they most recently received for cleanliness. This is a nightmare for everyone; it’s rare that any restaurant will sneak away with no health violations. The grades will be assigned during the next year, when the Health […]
Here is some news: the Emporio Armani Fall/Winter 2011/2012 ad campaign is public! Here is why that news is sort of relevant: those ads were all shot on our fair campus mere months ago! Take a look: there’s the model shrouded in smoke wearing all black next to a building that looks like Uris, the […]
Cynthia Murphy, one of the Russian spies who has destroyed everything that is holy (Montclair, New Jersey) attended Columbia B-School, and got her MBA in May, Bloomberg (not the mayor) confirms. That means we all went to school with a SPY! The Kremlin probably has your UNI on file or something. Putin knows that you […]
New vending machines in Butler Cafe and Uris are getting macho and crunchy, respectively. The B-School cafeteria, which already basically monopolizes the other vending machines on this campus anyway, is offering FreshDirect microwaveables: Rosa Mexicano Chicken and Cheese Enchiladas with Ranchera Sauce, Terrance Brennan Beef Bourguignon with Egg noodles, and Wild Alaskan Halibut with Wild […]
Nathan Bailey, Lenny Langenscheidt and John Nordin, (bottom, middle, top of picture respectively) all CC ’12, get a lot of weird looks. This is due to the trio’s penchant for free running around campus as the rest of us peacefully walk to class. Free running is essentially the British and American version of Parkour, which […]
With the new year comes new dining policies, and none may be more threatening to freshman waistlines than the institution of “Order-by-Phone” pickup system at JJ’s. According to Dining Services, “you can order any food item from the menu in advance by calling 212-851-5801 and can pick it up approximately 15 minutes after the phone […]
Spotted heading toward Uris earlier this evening: Jim Cramer, the excitable host of CNBC’s Mad Money. He was alone and talking on his cell phone. “He sounded, well, mad,” reported an eyewitness. The reasons for his campus visit are of course a mystery, though Bwog would like to point out that he has a 17 […]
Free samples of Boar’s Head meats and cheeses, and Izze juices, in the Uris cafeteria right about now. You can also nab a nifty Boar’s Head insulated sandwich bag that you can cool in your freezer. And also, Columbia Catering, the exclusive catering service of Lerner Hall, has free bag lunches in the Piano Lounge. […]
If you have been following the news in even the vaguest capacity over the past few years, or if you’ve ever tried to get a computer in Lerner around 1 PM, you’re aware of the major space crunch Columbia is experiencing. But who needs to move into Manhattanville when you have the garage below Uris, […]
